Aggravated robbery convict Josh Lucien has been remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison pending sentencing, scheduled for next month in the High Court.

This occurred after a 12-member jury found him guilty on Thursday, bringing his trial to an end after four days before Justice Keith Thom.

The convict, who targeted a supermarket four years ago, had pleaded not guilty to the allegation that he and another person unknown entered Hometown Supermarket in April 2015 and held up the cashier with a cutlass while demanding she hand over the money from the cash register.

In surveillance footage shown to the jury on the very first day of the hearing, the robber could be seen making his demands and getting the cash from the visibly shaken woman before escaping.

The court heard the sum stolen amounted to $1,500.

Sentencing is set for April 12.
